Located eight miles west of Portland, Ore., Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is a private nonprofit facility, which make up about 55 percent of all treatment facilities in Oregon. The treatment center operates multiple treatment facilities throughout California, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, Massachusetts, New York, and Oregon.

The Portland facility offers outpatient treatment services for individuals faced with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. The Beaverton location also specializes in providing medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction and an integrative LGBTQ treatment program.


According to Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation's website, to form an individualized treatment program, clients undergo an initial assessment of chemical, psychiatric, and social nature. This assessment helps clinicians develop a specifically-tailored plan.

Treatment plans typically include 12-step meetings, individual counseling and group therapy sessions, family therapy, and educational workshops. The outpatient program takes place five days a week and is typically completed in 24 sessions, based on client progress. Those in recovery from opioid addiction may also receive Suboxone or Naltrexone to alleviate their withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Incorporating these core program components, the LGBTQ-integrative addiction treatment program addresses co-occurring mental health issues common to the LGBTQ community. Topics discussed may include internalizing homophobia and shame, trauma, depression, and anxiety. The Beaverton location also offers a specialized DUI Diversion program, which satisfies Oregon’s mandated treatment requirements for DUI offenders.

Finally, the Beaverton location offers recovery management services for program graduates. Counselor-led continuing care groups, monitoring and accountability services, web-based coaching services, and recovery-focused retreats are just some of the many services available to help alumni stay motivated in the early stages of recovery.


Hazelden of Beaverton employs master’s level addiction counselors, a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), case managers, and certified mental health professionals. The only staff that can administer Suboxone or Naltrexone are the outpatient facility’s board-certified physicians. The treatment center is one of the 16 (7.1 percent) of Oregon treatment facilities that are accredited by The Joint Commission.
